Prayer Opportunities - November 28, 2021

              

Focused Prayer… 

Reading the Bible, attending church, and gathering with fellow followers of Jesus is forbidden in certain parts of the world, yet over 300 million people risk their lives to do it anyway.   This week let’s pray for our brothers and sisters in Christ who live in some of these countries. 

Monday – For the last 20 years, North Korea ranks No. 1 in the world for persecuting Christians.  Yet, the number of Christians in North Korea continues to increase. 

Tuesday – Nigeria ranks No. 1 for the number of Christians killed for reasons related to their faith. 

Wednesday – In the United States, we continue to have the freedom to pursue Jesus and openly share Him with those around us.  Let us be thankful today for this amazing gift! 

Thursday – China ranks No. 1 in the number of Christian churches attacked or closed.  It is also No. 1 in the number of Christians being arrested, jailed, or detained without charge for reasons related to their faith. 

Friday – Christians in Afghanistan, ranked No. 2 in the world, are persecuted because of ethnic antagonism, called “clan oppression”.  This oppression is expected to increase due to the recent Taliban takeover.

 

You have an open invitation to join us for Prayer Group in the Fireside Room every Sunday morning beginning at 9:40 AM as we pray over all the following concerns/praises.  All ages are welcome to join us! 

Attention Men:  You have an open invitation to join us for breakfast at Russ’ Restaurant on Henry St. on Thursday mornings at 8:00 AM and to pray for the needs of the congregation while enjoying Christian fellowship. 

Do you have a concern, praise, thanks or update?  If so, please let us know by calling/emailing the church office 231-737-5207 / info@calvin-crc.org, or filling out a Connection Card (located in the pew), so we can lift you and your loved one(s) up in prayer.
